With Jean Hoeft, MA

Students will explore all of the algebraic concepts; both linear and nonlinear as well as functions, complex numbers and concepts approaching trigonometry. This course will fulfill all requirements for an Algebra 2 course and ready students for High School advanced topics in math including Pre-calculus concepts.

Students will explore all of the algebraic concepts; both linear and nonlinear as well as functions, complex numbers and concepts approaching trigonometry. This course will fulfill all requirements for an Algebra 2 course and ready students for High School advanced topics in math including Pre-calculus concepts. Students are expected to watch the recordings of the instructor’s lecture each week and come to class prepared to work problems with the class based on those lectures, along with answering questions on what they have watched.
